Several Bay Area schools were among the top California public high schools in a recent report, but Southern California schools dominated the top of the list.

In U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of 1,652 California schools released this week, Riverside Stem Academy in Riverside, Whitney High School in Cerritos and Science Academy Stem Magnet in North Hollywood took the top three spots, followed by schools in Cypress, Carson and Wilmington. 

According to the ranking, Riverside Stem Academy has 250 high school students. Nearly 75% are from a minority group, and 47% are economically disadvantaged.
